Ray, rules have not been posted as of yet. Awaiting final graphics from Randy. I am hoping it goes on presage later tonight or tomorrow. Keeping fingers crossed!

Been waiting for this one for a while.  And I am not the only one based on comments at the B-17 tournament at Celesticon.  I see no problem with it making its numbers for publication once its hits the CPO.  Have the rules been posted anywhere (have not seen them in my usual haunts)

The game should be going on presale sometime during the Labor Day weekend. The page is ready and will be launched when Randy at Legion Wargames has all the other games ready to go. He's got a huge selection coming out so keep an eye out!

Ron -- yes. Randy was giving it an open playtest at the CSW Expo.

This is great. I am really looking forward to this game. You'll see an add-on coming from me, if I can adjust it to Target for Today. I've been working on B-17/LB-30/B-24 in the PTO from Dec -41 for QOTS, but have put it on hold while working on B-26. With a couple of new books on the subject, I'll pick it up again. And also, some of you playing B-17 might know of my He111 - The Spade variant for QOTS. I'll see if I can pick that up again and adjust it to TfT. It is basically finished. I need to do more work on the target lists though.

A friend of mine said he saw a "B-17" game at ConSimWorld game convention. Yours?  :)

All files have been sent to Randy. Look for the game to go on presale during the July/August 2015 period!

Yesterday I attended the funeral of my great uncle, (Capt.) Lauri Koski, USAAF, who flew 51 missions (copilot and pilot, I believe) in a B-17 with the 49th Bomb Squadron, 2nd Bomb Group, 5th Bomb Wing, 15th Air Force, receiving two DFCs along the way. Hearing some stories from him the last time I saw him this past summer, and from family and online resources since he passed away, gets me really in the mood for Bombs Away!
